Mountain Goats Live at the Fillmore on 2017-06-02
- Mountain Goats
I wish John's vocals were louder at some points, but it's basically exactly what you heard in the room, and it's hard to imagine a better recording without plugging into the board. I hope everyone enjoys. (edit: kylenote ~1.5 years later- after catching the live taping itch, perpetually seeking to improve my gear and techniques, it is wild reading this comment. All I did was plop my h4n pro down and point it between the stacks, XY 90 degrees. Simple as can be. Goes to show how much of taping is positioning.)
Recorded on the balcony of the Fillmore- 24bit/48khz. Thank you to the Mountain Goats for creating such beautiful music. Thank you to John Darnielle for supporting livetaping, and thanks to everyone else who has ever taped a show. They've brought me countless hours of enjoyment, as I hope mine do as well.
Please throw as much money at the Mountain Goats as humanly possible- their official store is located here https://themountaingoats.kungfustore.com

Subject: Overall Good Set/Recording
Overall the set list was great, John was blasted by the end of the night and slurring lyrics a bit towards the end, but this live show made me fall in love with the new tracks from "Goths" which I had been rather lukewarm on since the release of the album.
John played and just seemed to want to keep playing, as is evident by the long setlist. I hope to hear "We Do it Different On the West Coast" at all California shows from now on - it can replace the classic "California Song" that he does most often in SF. Either one will do.
Keep it up, good recording of a strong show!
